1. Some election officials need to go to prison

Until someone is held accountable for their intentional attempts to deny people their legal right to vote this kind of shit is going to keep happening, time to send some election riggers to prison.

3. This should never happen

This time, though it disenfranchised 200 K voters, Obama still won the state and did not even need the state for re-election. The same thing happened in Ohio 2004 - and that changed history. With no long lines, Kerry would have pulled off an upset that few thought possible -- against the concerted efforts of the media and parts of the Catholic church - in spite of gay marriage being used as a wedge issue.

4. Mission accomplished for Rick Scott and the Florida Republicans.

Fortunately it still wasn't enough.

6. It may have backfired

We beat republicans soundly in the early vote. A good number of the 200K may have been Rmoney supporters.
